    Hey Desiree, thanks for this post! I looked up treatments in spas near our place, and I found a package for 2 chemical peels and 2 microdermabrasion treatments for $323 (Canadian dollars!). I'm leaving in less than 1 month, so they will arrange 2 treatments before I leave, which is better than nothing, and will complete the course upon my return. I had really bad acne as a teenager, and frustratingly, started adult acne about 2 years ago. I don't want a break-out while we're there, and wish to try to minimize the scarring. I had never even thought of these treatments until this thread started.

    Thanks again girls!!!

      Several places told me that if I had microdermabrasion alone, I would need about 8-10 consistant treatments. Around here, with tips it cost about $1000 for all that.

        I'd love to have a series of IPL treatments, thermage for the eyes, and restylane lip injections... sigh... it's just not in the budget.
        So, I'm just eating healthy, taking vitamins & working out to look my best for the wedding day :)

          Wow ...I don't think I can spend a fortune on this after all the wedding expenses ... I don't have acne problem, but I have a few freckles on my cheeks. Well, I am taking collegen powder every day, so hopefully my skin will look nicer in a month!

            Oh Chantal, would you be able to PM me the places you called for these treatments? I wouldn't mind inquiring as well. I'm in Toronto too.

            Were there any that you heard good referrals about?

              Yes actually, I've had referrals for the place I go to. It's in Pickering but worth it for me! Will PM you :-)
